We invite you to join us here at Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center as we celebrate the holidays with light refreshments and holiday activities for young and old alike. One activity will be learning how to recycle last years Natural Event Calendar into this years holiday gifts. You also can enjoy the evening by crafting a variety of nature ornaments to take home.

You will find items from bird-friendly coffee to shaped nature puzzles, as well as the 2023 MDC Nature Event Calendars. Other interesting nature-inspired items include t-shirts, stuffed animals, and ornaments to decorate your tree. There is also a great selection of bird-related items including feeders, binoculars, and identification books.
